For most movie makers it can be difficult at best to recreate a story such as this about a person who took on odds, doubt & obstacles to give African American & Latino students a better shot at life, through eduaction.
Personally, I loved this movie. I first saw it during my Sophomore year in high school. I was on hiatus my fall semester attending another school, and was upset that I couldn't be back home. However, I was filled with pride knowing that my principal, & school's history was becoming a part of Americana. So to some this may have been a cheezy attempt. To me this made for TV film will go down in history that preceeded Lean On Me, Stand and Deliver an others, but all will chronical the struggles and triumphs that a few will self inflict to take on the inequalities our nation perpetuates on it's inner city youth.
IF YOU ARE COLLECTING GOOD WHOLESOME VIDEOS THAT CAN BE PULLED OUT OF YOUR LIBRARY AND SHOWN TO ALL AGES, ESPECIALLY HIGH SCHOOL SOPHOMORES AND UP --- THIS IS A MUST SEE AND PURCHASE. GET THE FAMILY TOGETHER AND SET TIME ASIDE FOR A DISCUSSION AFTERWARDS, IT JUST MIGHT PRODUCE A CHANGE IN YOUR PERSPECTIVE.
When you get finish watching it, you will actually want MORE --- because it was just that good.
